I have been to numerous Golden Corrals and this was neither the worst or the best one It was close to the hotel we were at so it was convenient Did like that you could get unlimited milk shake, not something I have seen in a GC before The food was the usual choices which were fine, nothing special, the...

Great selection of foods, enough to please everyone, loved the breakfast favorites which were available during lunchtime, my favorite offering- the collards, just like grandma used to make! Staff was nice in serving our large party as a walk in group. Quickly seated together and all employees were attentive. Also liked the choices of the bottled drinks (Gatorade, Lipton teas)... More

Loved everything. Only dislike was the crowd. It is a popular place so you should expect a line and/or a crowd. The food was very fresh and due to the crowd was refilled often. Waitstaff was very nice and helpful.

Went with a group of 5, we went at 630pm on Tuesday. No line, service was only so-so, we had to walk and get our first refill of drinks. The food has went down hill. Wont be back any time soon.

Went for supper on Wednesday. Nothing to boast about on the buffet line. The new addition of breakfast foods is a reduction in value to the customer. The staff was very friendly. Cleanliness was mediocre.

Straight from Murell South Carolina on our way back to Maryland, we were very hungry and soon enough we saw Golden Coral. We paid $48 for a family of 5 including soda. It was cheap for me compared to the price here in MD. The place was not crowded. The lady attending our table was very attentive to our needs.... More

I see the reason why Golden Corral is slowly dwindling. The food was not bad, but not good enough to make me say, "let's come here again." The price was almost disturbing for the quality of food. Around $12 a person before tax, if you want a drink, it is $2.29 There are much better choices for that price. The... More

We were in Raleigh yesterday, and decided to eat before heading back home to Virginia. We saw this Golden Corral, and decided to dine there. What a GROSS mistake! We've been to other Golden Corrals in other places that we've lived, but never anything near this disgusting. Food was not fresh, nor were the areas clean. There were brown ROTTEN... More

This Golden Coral on Capital Boulevard in Raleigh, NC, was a very good restaurant to eat at. The triple fountain was very good. Only had one complaint. I got a bowl of chicken noodle soup & it didn't taste good. I don't know if it was watered down or what. It didn't have a good flavor. Over all, I would... More

This was probably the best Golden Coral I have eaten in. The place was very clean and you had plenty of room, not bunched in like a lot of them are. Typical Golden Coral selects, which were many. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a good meal and you can make it as fast as you want.
